The Joy of Easter

 butterfly

 

(Butterfly painted by Dara Cummins age 7 )

 

The butterfly has long been a Christian symbol of resurrection because the caterpillar disappears into a cocoon and appears dead, but emerges later far more alive, beautiful and powerful than before. 

Christianity should help us to see God in all things.  But instead of seeing God in new and surprising places, it too often has led us to confine God inside our place! 

This prayer for blessing should help us see more clearly!


Lord, bless me with the ability of a butterfly to endure the changes that will happen to me in my lifetime. Help me to accept these changes with a positive and loving attitude.


Bless me with the beauty of a butterfly to allow me to reflect the colours of my soul, being and individuality, and to look for these things in others.


Bless me with the ability of a butterfly to create and instill the feeling of wonder, passion, and excitement towards all of your living creatures.


Bless me with the butterflies' ability to pollinate your flowers, so that I may cultivate your human garden with love and compassion.


Last, but not least, Lord,
Bless me with the grace of ascension, so that I may ascend into your glorious heaven like a rising butterfly, when my journey here on earth is complete. Amen

Easter Thank you

Easter Thank You

Thank you to those who have worked so hard on our behalf in the preparation and celebration of Lent and Easter. 

To our environment group for the displays, banners,  prayer tree, Easter Garden, flowers, candles, and all the other bits and pieces that enhanced the journey so much.

To those who prepared and presented the beautiful prayers and reflections for our 40 Hours Adoration as Lent began and the Vigil at the Altar of Repose on Holy Thursday Night.

To our faithful band of cleaners and those who augmented them for looking after the Church, inside and out, with such loving care and commitment.

To the Folk Group, Cantors, Youth Ensemble, children’s choir, combined choirs, Garda Choir, organists and music co-ordinators – the music has been appropriate and wonderful as ever.

To our readers; Eucharistic ministers, welcome team, altar servers, car park attendants, collectors and counters, sacristans, altar society; Civil Defence, and all who exercised their ministries in a whole variety of way.

To the Family Groups and Family Ministry Team who ensure the presence and participation of the children and who do so much to help make our parish feel like a true family of faith and love.

To those who prepared and accompanied our catechumens for Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

To those who volunteered to have their feet washed.

To those who presented our Lenten talks in the Upper Room and to the Passionist Community who celebrated Masses, conducted Services, heard confessions, and preached the 7 Last Words, and to those frailer members who prayed with us and for us.

Also to those who prepared, printed, copied, folded and distributed leaflets for the various services.

And lastly to those who through human frailty I may have forgotten.

Thank you is never enough – but it’s all we have, and to them and to you I offer an Easter Blessing
